to see if you qualify for Hardship Status.


What do I have to do to qualify for this program?

First of all you must have a legitimate hardship. If you do, simply call our office and we will start working to see if you fit the IRS test to place you in a Hardship Status.


How long has this program been around?

This program has always been around but it is not spoken of very much because IRS wants to collect the money, so this program is not advertised.


How do I know if I qualify and when could I find out?

The IRS has an acid test for this program and it is called the National Standards Program. If you meet the means test, your case may be put in a Noncollectable Status.
Fresh Start Tax can advise you if you meet the means test.


How long will my case stay in the Noncollectable Status?

Your case stays there for at least one year, most times for three years. Depending on your tax returns, your case could stay there for the life of the statue.


What forms are necessary to complete the National Standard Test?

Form 433A or 433F Information Collection Statements are the IRS forms needed to complete this test. Once the form is complete, IRS will ask for the documentation to make sure you are telling the truth. If you are and you qualify, your case will be put in Noncollectable Status.
